Manufacturing matters.

The Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center (CEMAC) provides objective analysis and up-to-date data on global clean energy manufacturing. Policymakers and industry leaders seek CEMAC insights to inform choices to promote economic growth and the transition to a clean energy economy.

A Critical Role

The Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center understands manufacturing's critical role in the new energy economy. Learn more about the CEMAC mission and vision.

Objective, Insightful

CEMAC analysis illuminates supply chains and manufacturing across energy sectors. Learn more about CEMAC's products and publications.

A diagram maps the flow of material across several clean energy manufacturing industries. The diagram begins with raw materials, such as silica, steel, and polyethylene, on the left, and progresses through types of processed materials, components, products, and technologies, to end on clean energy ecosystems on the right. The diagram illustrates how some materials, such as steel, flow into many products, while others, such as cobalt, are more limited.

Systems Analysis of Manufacturing Supply Chains

August 8, 2017—Despite the recent boom in advanced clean energy technologies, little work has been done to understand the complexities and interconnections within these technologies' supply chains. New work by CEMAC strives to capture the materials, products, supply chains, and their linkages across the clean energy manufacturing landscape. We are now seeking partners and sponsors to help us expand this analysis.

Report Compares International Carbon Fiber Manufacturing

July 6, 2017—Global demand for carbon fiber is projected to grow 10% per year between 2015 and 2024, but it is not clear where new manufacturing facilities will locate to meet this demand. A new CEMAC report examines some of the policy and manufacturing factors that will shape the growth of the global carbon fiber industry.
